Here's Dana Milbank's interesting catch on Willard "Sketchy" Romney's response to the Etch-a-Sketch mega-gaffe:
"Consider Romney’s response when asked about his aide’s claim that the general election would be like an Etch a Sketch, erasing conservative positions he took in the primaries. 'I’m running as a conservative Republican,' the candidate told a group of reporters Wednesday after his town-hall event in suburban Baltimore. He didn’t say he is a conservative Republican; he said he’s running as one. As if this is a persona for this particular campaign."So many times, Sketchy's spontaneous comments have betrayed his true thoughts ("Corporations are people," "I'm not concerned about the very poor," and the comment that $374,000 in speaking fees isn't a lot of money). Once again, he's exhibiting his persona as opportunistic, tactical, dishonest, and untrustworthy.
